We offer several programs for foreclosures. If it's a Fannie Mae foreclosure we have the Homepath Financing program and we also have the HUD $100 down program for HUD foreclosures. Please let me know if you need more information on these two programs.

In order to purchase any home, except paying cash, you will need to be pre qualified by a mortgage institution. You will have to meet the minimal credit score set by the particular company you are prequalifying with. Minimal scores may vary a little from lender to lender. There is not a lower credit score qualification for a foreclosed home that I know about. So, if you qualify, you will be able to choose from a foreclosure, or a resale home, or a new home.

I can help you with a FHA home loan if your mid credit score is at least 580. The foreclosure would need to be able to go FHA. Contact me for more information.

The qualifications are the same as buying any other type of home which is typically a 620-640. You may find a reduced down payment on HUD homes. If you'd like more information please contact me--I'm glad to help. Talk to you soon...V

Foreclosure homes do not come with a lower Interest Rate,
Nor does matter what your Credit Score is:
Your Interest Rate is dependent upon your Credit Score.
Borrowing money for a Foreclosure can be easier because the Selling Price is generally lower.
But getting the Loan, and the Interest Rate are dependent upon YOU, not the house.
You should talk to a Mortgage Officer and see what you can qualify for.
